. it was the chairman of the judiciary committee, your colleague, senator leahy, who said wait a minute, i know the nsa tells us 54 plots in one way or another have been this wartded because of the program senator chambliss is referring to, he says that's a bit of an joef statement, and he said it in open testimony this week. listen. >> open testimony is section 215 to thwart or prevent 54 terrorist plots. not by any stretch can you get 54 terrorist plots. this program is not effective. it has to end. so far i'm not convinced by what i've seen. >> do you agree with that? >> we had a meeting in the white house, saxby and i attended it with the president. there were about ten of us, democrats and republicans, from the house and the senate, and we spent an hour and a half in the president in the oval office, an hour and a half going over this nsa, debating it back and forth. the nsa 215 program that we're talking about here is a program on domestic surveillance. in other words, do we need to collect all of the phone records of all of the people living in america for five years so that if we're going to ta

it is not a smoke screen to help the nsa. >> we critize them for doing too little and now critize for too much. the worldwide alert is warranted in this situation. >> last week the al-qaeda leader called for attacks. the second 14 minute tape was posted on the internet on friday and marks the 15 year anniversary of al-qaeda's first attack. the si multiapous embassy bombings in tanzanyia. and the focus of the terrorist threat remains in yemen and why the british and french closed the embassy in yemen for the coming days. >> thank you, gen. >> gen mentioned, the focus is on yemen and a known hot bed of activity for al-qaeda. >> it is short for al-qaeda in the araban peninsula. it is considered to be the most dangerous al-qaeda affiliate. it is blamed for several terrorist plots in the united states. and including the bombing attempt on an airliner on christmas day. another plot involving bombs described as printer cartridges. that was broken up thanks for a tip from saudi intelligence officials. they are thought to have influenced the fort hood shotter hassan that left 13 killed and dozens more
the nsa keeps tabs on us, but there's anger behind the escapes that we're not using this spy tools widely enough. the time quotes intelligence experts who say other government agencies want access to all the secret information the nsa selected. let's take you to the judge. senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. >> at first the government toldes when snowden made his initial revelations the only thing they captured was basic information, billing information,. who you called, when you called, how long you spoke. >> shepard: they lied to us. >> snowden and other nsa whistle-blowers, including one named thomas drake who has been on shows in this building, was prosecuted by the government, and the prosecution was thrown out. reveals the government does have the context of phone calls and e-mails and can read them. this morning we learn that other entities in the federal government are jealous that the nsa has this and they want it. but the dea revealed, the drug enforcement administration, it has received it. so, they have actually started criminal investigations based on informatio
the opportunity to promote their own position on the nsa and the impact of budget cuts. >> al qaeda's on the rise in this part of the world and the nsa program is proven its worth yet again. we need to re-evaluate where we're at. sequestration has to be fixed. if this happens a year from now, our intelligence communities will be less capable. >> for more on the threat and ways being done to combat it, for that, i'm joined by nbc's justice correspondent pete williams. all right, pete, do we have new information from what we knew thursday and friday about this terror threat, from what we've learned over the weekend? >> well, yes, i think from members of congress, have been saying -- remember, they've been getting briefings on this. i must say, chuck, i think there's another factor at play here in addition to all the ones you mentioned about why the government is being so forthcoming about this. you may recall there was a lot of criticism after the bombing of twa flight 800 that the government was telling its people not to fly but not saying anything to the general traveling public. now the rule is
for myself over the weekend. first of all, let me make a few comments. nsa picked up some chatter. it is about time nsa got back to the business they're supposed to be in. secondly, al qaeda has made a point for years now not to use cell phones and other communications. dana made a point before the show maybe they're desperate. my guess is some of it may be just to throw us off. the third thing, if we hadn't closed embassies and something happened, you all would be all over it. and the last thing i will say, embassies have been closed the last 75 years as circumstances dictate. this may be more closures, goes to teddy roosevelt when they closed some. i would not consider this american weakness. and also the yemens, not rogue or research, clearly upset, right winger. >> the bar scene is where all of the freaks hang out. that's the deal. >> dana, critics at the nsa would say this is really convenient for this to happen while the programs are under fire and snowden is embarrassing us, now we can come say look at all that we uncovered. >> i am uncomfortable talking about intelligent t
, because of a terror threat and the nsa snooping powers. how does the judge feel about that? he's next. >> at least 19 embassies and consulates will remain closed until next week due to what the state department calls significant and detailed intelligence recording terror attacks and so far to al qaeda. we've got to ask you. does judge napitano agree with the nsa snoops? >> charles, i love you, but you've gotten from one point to another without us looking at the dots in between. first of all, the nsa's behavior by law is limited to the united states and the cia's behavior by law is precluded from the united states. so if these threats came from the arabian peninsula and were directed at u.s. assets there, more likely than not it's generated by the cia. >> the cia and the nsa has boundaries? >> yes. >> and how can they listen to a phone call in yemen? >> ahey. how can they mislead the congress, how can they spy on americans without any evidence? they can because they have the ability to do so. and when the nsa was asked by congressman mike rogers, do you have the ability to listen to
flights. fresh debate about the nsa's surveillance program which intelligence officials say tipped them off about this latest threat. >> it is scary. al qaeda is on the rise and this part of the world and the nsa program is proving it's worth yet again. >> you have to be very careful about how much you represent that any particular program has contributed to our security. >> reporter: kristen welker, nbc news, washington. >>> embattled yankees slugger alex rodriguez may be banned from baseball on the very day he returns to the majors. at my noon, the mlb is expected to ban a-rod through the 2014 season for his alleged connections to a florida clinic that administered performance-enhancing drugs. despite that, manager joe girardi confirmed a-rod will play his first game tonight. jay gray is live outside the yankees stadium in the bronx. what's the sequence of events we might expect to see today? >> reporter: good morning. outside yankee stadium. relatively quiet as major league baseball gets ready to break its silence. here's the front page of "the post." just go it says. fans ban a-rod,
n.s.a. contractor turned whistle blower and also of the upcoming lonely planet terminal-d of the moscow airport. so what has he been up to apart from nothing? >> russian news agencies reported that snowden would get a special i.d. card or document of some kind that would allow him to finally leave the airport transit zone. but it turns out that the lawyer wasn't carrying any such i.d. card. he did have some fresh clothes for us, some pizza and a couple of books by check often. >> john: that's nice because nothing lightens a man's spirits like theodore. i think you'll find him in barnes and enable's misery section. take that. now you understand suffering. i've got no problem with you, checkov. no problem. but like a hotel phone ringing at 5:30 a.m. because you specifically requested it, snowden has provided a real wake-up call. (laughing). he's forced americans to examine the trade-offs we've made between national security and not having the government listen into our private phone calls with 55 [bleep]. i told that in confidence about my private medical history. i'm conc
want to touch on the nsa and the news over the last month or so now of systematic tapping or collection of information to begin again, it is striking to me there was a moment when, you know, it was a phone tapping. the information was passing by and the nsa or the fbi or whatever jurisdiction was wiretapping phones and now what is a different model. the flow of information, we don't know the details but it is ostensibly taking it from the datacenter or from the microsoft data center. where does this -- could this be the tipping point on this moment in the way that we treat -- they control the freedom and openness of the network? >> guest: for me this story is just a continuation of a long story of surveillance by the government. it's different in degrees, but not actually in kind. in the 20th century, every single telegraph sent from the united states to another country was systematically copied by the government and maintained. there was widespread domestic surveillance of networks. now today we try to constrain using oh-la-la on our domestic intelligence surveillance, but we have also
? >> the timing is so convenient. >> it's too convenient. >> yeah. >> the nsa is under attack, and there is a red alert, and they almost lost the vote in the house which is unheard of on spying. so they are like don't we have something laying around that is incredibly scary. >> yeah, and the first segment of this show should be now the nsa is working with the dea to give information on american drug traffickers to prosecute them. so there's more information about how the nsa is spying on us, and instead of using that for national security, they are using it to prosecute americans for drug use and drug trafficking. every week there is a story about how we'll being violated, and this is a great distraction. but when is it news that al qaeda wants to go after us? >> yeah, the question is, is item innocent. 19 embassies they shut down unofficially for the weekend, and then for the week, because they are saying it's coming. it's coming, but two things here. number 1, the body bombers, we looked into this. there was stuff about that in the media at the end of last year. so it isn't new. all of a sudden
in a moment. >>> a secret government program that may be far more reaching than the one conducted by the nsa. and guess what, yup, it's targeting you, american citizens. not terrorists in some foreign land. you. that's according to an exclusive report by reuters. i'm going to explain the full extent of it coming up. [ female announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning.
the terror warnings as a way to divert attention away from other issues, particularly the nsa leaks. are they right, or is the administration simply responding to threats that actually exist? >> well, i think the obama administration has a fair amount more credibility. the bush problem was this ridiculous orange, red, yell, orange, red, yellow and making a big deal about that every day, which the obama people properly abandoned. look, you have to react to what the intelligence is finding. the intelligence clearly gave a credible warning. if you don't react to that and you're the president of the united states, then the death of americans is on your shoulders. so of course he's going to react. of course he's going to close embassies if he feels they're at risk. the most ridiculous thing about the republican posturing is after all the fuss they put up about benghazi, you'd be suspecting maybe they'd support the president when he tried to make sure that didn't happen again. >> well, and it's not necessarily a partisan issue. i mean, if you look at the recent polls, there are skeptics o
, to me, that's a big tummy rub for the nsa program. >> stephanie: i know. but then i can't help when i hear people that i trust whethe% it is al franken or dianne feinstein, if we get hit again because of that tool, rand paul, say good-bye to all of our civil liberties. and i include glen greenwald in that jack a lope. jim, you're sometimes on the side of this, i understand. that's the piece i was thinking. i think it might have been tomasky. talking about this. that's what he really fears is that if we get hit again, forget any of our civil liberties. that's why i think there has to be a balance between, you know, this nsa stuff and security. and i know i will get more letters calling me a neocon. jim, you have to believe there are terrorists throughout that want to kill us. >> sure. >> stephanie: little disconcerting there are the prison breaks, al-qaeda people everywhere and anniversary of 9-11 is coming up this sunday. the end of ramadan. i think there is a reason. >> a month from sunday. >> stephanie: right. there was some reason they thought yesterday might have been a target. it
in the month of august. supporters of the nsa suggest that the agency is the source of the intelligence. >> the good news is that we picked up intelligence. that's what nsa does. >> the nsa program is proving its worth again. >> reporter: the threat is said to have originated in yemen where the u.s. embassy now looks like a fortress. in the face of terror, americans on high alert. bryan mooar. >>> the san jose police department deployed a gang suppression unit tonight for the first time. it's part of the effort to reduce the number of violent crime and increase police presence in san jose. the gang suppression unit will be deployed seven days a week. the plan will be evaluated at the end of the summer to see if the program is working and whether it should continue. >>> we have an update to a story involving santa clara county's ambulance company. it plans to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy as a move to cut debt and expenses in half while continuing to operate as normal. it is a national company that provides private ambulance services to 700 communities in 21 states and santa clara count
nothing has been done wrong. >> it has worked with the nsa and that is completely inappropriate. >> some are calling with a -- for a special parliamentary commission. >> we get the feeling the intelligence agencies only tell us what they absolutely have to instead of what they really should be telling us. >> there will be plenty to discuss when the control committee meets next monday. the german agencies will face questions about the extent of their cooperation. >> other stories making news around the world. japan's aggression in the nuclear power plant is likely discharging radioactive they have a barrier designed to contain it and it threatens to seek into a nearby bay. >> protesters are demanding morsi's reinstatement as president in egypt. >> allies of the prime minister have held talks, concerned that the future of the current prime minister and supporters have been threatening to withdraw from the coalition after the media magnate was sentenced for tax fraud. >> there is a great concern when there is a violation of food safety. >> several countries have banned a formula by a giant,
for the "washington post," "time" magazine, the senior fellow at the carnegie sentry foundation, was on the n.s.a. snooping story very early on. david sanger chief washington correspondent for the "new york times." and rounding out the group our old pal john dickerson, our cbs news political director. so we have this threat. does this-- mark, you're the one who first broke this story about edward snowden-- does this change this debate on what the national security agency is doing? because, obviously, the reason we know about this threat is the capabilities at the national security agency. >> well, it's a reminder of the other side of the story, which is that we depend on intelligence. we depend on surveillance, and particularly, we depend on signals to keep the country safe. it doesn't change much about whether they've gone too far or whether we understand enough about the basic outlines of what they're doing that affects american privacy. >> schieffer: do you think-- i mean, because people always say this when something like this happens. people will say, "you don't suppose they're making more o
is asking for tighter screening of overseas flight. fresh debate about the nsa's surveillance officials say tipped them off about this latest threat. >> it is scary. al qaeda is on the rise in this part of the world. the nsa program has proven its worth yet again. >> you have to be very careful about how much you represent that any particular program has contributed to our security. >> reporter: kristen welker, nbc news, washington. >>> alex rodriguez may be banned from baseball on the very day he returns to the naj ors. at high noon today the mlb is expected to ban a-rod through the 2014 season for alleged connections to a florida clinic that administered performance-enhancing drugs. joe girardi confirmed a-rod will play his first game of the season tonight at the chicago white sox. jay gray has more on the mlb announcement. >> reporter: we expect the announcement around noon. a-rod not the only player involved here. we expect 12 to 14 major leaguers will receive suspensions. most of those 50-game suspensions which will have them banned for the rest of the season. for a-rod it looks like m
heard edward snowden, i was leading the fight in congress to take the nsa to task. i wrote a legislation to repeal the patriot act and the fisa amendments act. throughout my career, and this campaign, i have been advancing the bold ideas that we need to extend the american dream to all americans. bold ideas people will be talking about tonight. >> thank you very much. sheila oliver. opportunityate the to engage in dialogue with my opponents in this quest to fill the seat of the late senator frank lautenberg. voters ofope that the new jersey listen intently this evening as we focus on issues that are not just important to capitol hill, but also those issues that are important to the people that live in the state. as a u.s. senator, you have an obligation to engage in moving the agenda of the nation forward, but you should also use that representation to help move an agenda forward for the state of new jersey, and its citizens. as a legislative leader, i have visited the length and breadth of the state, engage with communities from cape may up to just during at campaign. i think that my 10
that much of what the nsa is doing spying on american citizens is violation of the fourth amendment and a violation of the statue. this opinion remains a complete secret. the fisa court said they had no objection to having it relieved but the obama administration says it has to be secret. >> what do you say to glenn gre greenwald? >> he has a point that they need to be classified if only for the sake of the appearance and credibility and trust of the american people in that institution. if you were to say that a court operates in secret, issues opinions in secret, its deliberations are all secret, its judges are secret in all of the work they do, it sounds a lot like the kind of star chamber or proceedings that existed at the time of our revolution and our rebellion against england. this court is a black box. it needs to be opened and at least some ways so that trust and credibility are maintained and enhanced, which is the reason for my proposal that there be be an adversarial process and opinions be disclosed and classified and that there be a different method of selecting. all co
, that is most unusual. is there any feeling this is the government issuing a warning at a time when the nsa is under scrutiny for its broad-reaching surveillance programs? >> reporter: well, clearly the information came as a result of those nsa surveillance programs. the doubters may think so but even congressman pete king, republican from new york, former head of homeland security and the administration's most vocal critic says no. >> we can't criticize them for doing too little with benghazi and not criticize them for doing too much. i give them credit for learning from benghazi and that's why they're firming up the embassies. as far as the worldwide alert i think it is absolutely warranted in this situation. >> reporter: the al qaeda leader, al-zawahiri who took over for bin laden after he was culled issued calls from separate audiotapes from wherever he is hiding in pakistan. the second 14-minute tape was posted on internet on friday. germany, france, england have intercepted similar intelligence and issued similar precautions closing their embassies in yemen this beak. kelly. >> better
america safe. karen was with group of demonstrators that say the nsa need to be reined in. >> >> reporter: a live lie group calling on local leaders to do more to protect the privacy of american citizens. >>> dangers to democracy are too great >> reporter: daniel exposed pentagon capers four decades ago, shedding light on america's policies in vietnam. he told a crowd of roughly 300 he identified strongly with edward snowden and manning. >> in the case of manning myself, we wanted to make people aware of the wars. ongoing war and hopelessness of it. in snowden's case, he was looking at violations of the constitution that are getting much debate and would never have done so without snowden's actions. >> reporter: this rally, organized by restore the force too many aim at the surveillance programs. supporters of them say it protects americans. >> you need to have a warrant, the warrant needs to have probable cause. you need to describe specific persons and things to be searched. you are what we have been learning about, the surveillance, follows none of these rules. >> reporter: this woman,
are suggesting that the nsa surveillance programs, these are needed to support this kind of intelligence and that provided this information. i want you to listen to senator saxbychambliss. >> these programs are controversial. they allow us to have the ability to gather this chatter that i referred to. if we did not have these programs then we wouldn't be able to listen in on the bad guys. >> wolf, do you think that's helping? do you think that's helping with the obama administration in trying to convince folks this isn't as bad as you think? >> saxby is a ranking republican on the intelligence committee. he gets a lot of inside frfgs from the intelligence community. i don't know if this particular threat is the result of nsa surveillance, any of these programs that have been monitoring conversations of various potential terrorists out there or whether it could have been some sort of human source. some sort of internal spy that may have provided this kind of information. i have no idea where the information came from but i do sense that someone like saxby who is a big supporter they think

on this matter. >> it is scary. al-qaeda's on the rise, and the nsa program is proving its worth yet again. but we need to reevaluate where we're at in light of these threats. sequestration has to be fixed. if this happens a year from now, our intelligence community and the military will be less capable. i appreciate what the administration's doing. they're taking the right approach to this. benghazi was a complete failure, the threats were real there, the reporting was real, and we basically dropped the ball. we've learned from benghazi, thank god, and the administration's doing this right. bill: all right. later on our program here general jack keane on the spread of al-qaeda and what may be in store next. the general's on deck coming up in 20 minutes. patti ann: in other news, it's high noon for a-rod. 12:00 eastern is when major league baseball is expected to announce that it is suspending yankees' third baseman alex rodriguez for his ties to a florida anti-aging clinic. adam houseley is live in san francisco. adam, hi. we've been waiting for this for a while. what can we expect today?
on the intelligence committee say the nsa's controversial spy program is what picked up on messages sent among senior al qaeda operatives. the state department decided to keep 19 u.s. embassies and consulates in the muslim world closed through friday. they point to the al qaeda threat, major prison brea in the middle east and the ramadan coming to a close this week. less than two hours from now, secretary of state, john kerry, is slated with meet with military leaders, thousands of troops in the middle east and in europe are on high alert. why they say last year's deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi is playing a role in this latest threat when i see you next. back to you. >> the state department's warnings are the reason why san francisco police are on high alert. there's no threat to san francisco but they are increasing patrols, focusing on government buildings and places of worship. they want everybody to keep an eye out for unusual activity. >> it's kind of unusual they are there. you ask yourself why. >> police say they are being proactive because it makes it easier for them to respo
